Rusty hits the auction block…..SOLD!

Yep, it’s a sad day (sort of);  I have decided to offer Rusty up for sale.  But the good news is the money is to be used to fund our next build, which we are very excited about.  I’d love to hold on to rusty; its a super fun bike to ride, and it was my first vintage moto.  Rusty got Josh and I into the old bikes in the first place.  But, the garage can only handle so many bikes and so can the pocketbook.

We swore after working our asses off to finish our last four bikes in time for the Moto show that we’d take the summer off to ride (and do some real work).  And we will definitely get some riding in this summer. But the built bug really latches on when it bites, and we are already discussing builds with a few folks, plus one for ourselves.

Stay tuned for news on the new builds.  But in the meantime, if you know of anyone that might be interested in owning one of the most ‘liked’ bikes on Bike EXIF this year, have them get in touch.  Thanks!

Here’s the Craigslist ad with details:

UPDATE:  I originally posted this on Tuesday, and as of today, Thursday, Rusty is sold.  I nice guy named Peter who lives on the east coast is the proud new owner.  Peter had seen Rusty on Bike EXIF and was extremely excited to get a chance to buy the bike.  He already owns an old CB360 and a Triumph bobber.  It sounds like Rusty will fit in well with his collection.  We’re sad to see Rusty leave the area, but excited for the opportunity to get started on some new builds!

    If I could have one like Rusty I would be also excited !!!
    Thanks to (or because of) Rusty I am now desperatly trying to find a faded orange cb tank to mount on my project…
    Just wondering if a cb250 or 350 tank would not look too much big on my cb125k5 frame… I hope not.
    For the moment, I have seen only CL tanks in this color. Don’t know if this color has been made also for CB 250/350/360 ?
    Anyway… I keep on searching and wanted to say “Longue vie à Rusty” ! Sorry for the french touch !
    What will be your next project ?!!
